Unique for a Kolel in a real metropolis, is Kolel Yad Chaim Mordechai in Cleveland under the leadership of Hagaon Rav Yaakov Velvel Katz, shlita.
The positive influence that this Kolel has had on families & Children in the city of cleveland is incredible.
Harav Katz, shlita is the Son of Harav Chaim mordechai Katz, zt'l Rosh Hayeshiva & Founder of Telshe in America. An outspoken member of the Moetzes Gedolei Hatorah and a true manhig of bnei torah in America.
Harav YV Katz,shlita is a very determined Rosh Kollel, a real "Ish Matzliach". He is blessed with true siyata dishmaya and Hatzlacha.
However the yeshiva of his sainted father, zt'l is in a much different matzav.
Telshe in cleveland is unfourtunatly in a difficult time with enrollment and with finances.
Who knows what would have been if the Hanhola of Telshe would have enlisted Harav Yaakov V Katz as a Member of the Hanhalo. The enrollment would have been as it deserves to be without question.
